Thanks for the information. I read about it. Yes, porting the latest WebKit would help a lot for future Amiga browser development. Odyssey is not bad. Can still use it in most relative Amiga situations without problems. Runs lighting fast on X5000, of course. Thanks again.
Comment by: Primax ( 11 Dec 2023, 10:41File version: 1.23r5

Currently there are no plans but this is the current project:
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 10 Dec 2023, 00:19File version: 1.23r5
Great to see it is still being developed. Any plans for a new version in the pipeline? What can we expect to see of improvements and new features? I love the Amiga. Only want the best for it. That's why I care so much. Keep up the excellent work. Never be afraid to develop for the Amiga. There's only pride in it. Runs fast on my X5000!

Great. It works. Thanks!

Delete all in (your path)Odyssey/conf/font/ and reboot.
Comment by: Hypex ( 06 Oct 2023, 18:18File version: 1.23r5
Is there a way for Odyssey cache fonts? I'm sure the older ones did. But in this version it always loads the fonts. I had a play with it a while back downloading fonts (again). But couldn't remember what else is needed to cache the fonts.
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 31 Aug 2022, 19:36File version: 1.23r5
Sites like YouTube and other Google heavy-influenced sites are very resource-hungry and tend to change often, getting more and more complex. OS4 browsers like Odyssey and TimberWolf need to get this Hardware Acceleration support in place, and a rather completely updated WebKit, in order to deal with those complex sites.
Comment by: redfox ( 25 Aug 2022, 03:21File version: 1.23r5
Other than the previously mentioned glitch, Odyssey seems to work ok on my system. YouTube and news websites seem to be the worst culprets.
Comment by: redfox ( 25 Aug 2022, 03:18File version: 1.23r5
I occasionally get a requester saying that Odyssey has not allocated memory.
Not sure if it gets smoked by javascript or if I am running out of memory.
MicroA1 computer with 256 MB of RAM.

Comment by: HKvalhe ( 03 Jan 2022, 11:09File version: 1.23r5
It's very interesting to see how the rewritten Odyssey was redone. My I suggest the option to move most of the Odyssey operations to hardware acceleration? Saying that with Warp3D Nova/OpenGL ES stuffs, could possible try to make the graphic card use the Video RAM for more of the heavy net operations in Odyssey. Other than that, keep up the excellent work.
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 03 Jan 2022, 01:24File version: 1.23r5
The new Odyssey 1.23r5 2022 release feels like a whole new, rewritten Odyssey, and I think it's actually is. Feels much more stable, it's quite fast and smooth, even on a SAM460ex. Excellent work, Kas1e! Keep it coming! Odyssey just got more modern!
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 07 Aug 2020, 22:28File version: 1.23r4
Latest Odyssey 1.23r5 Beta 7 has some graphic glitches. Possible to fix this issue? Otherwise, it works just very well.
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 07 Feb 2020, 20:55File version: 1.23r4
Again it seems that YouTube is doing some changes of support for different browsers and this causes problem for Odyssey. It would now seem that Odyssey either has to be updated to meet the standards of 2020, or at least have new scripts that can handle sites like YouTube with full support as possible.
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 02 May 2019, 16:56File version: 1.23r4
I'm not sure if this is due to the latest AmiSSL build, but I rather suspect the old Javascript in Odyssey Web Browser to have become more of a problem. As an example, when running Facebook even with default Javascript turnt on, Facebook runs unbearable slow in Odyssey and eats up a lot of memory. It would be better if this Javascript thing was replaced by the long awaited PPC-JIT implementation people talk about. At least, something clearly has to be done to improve this. This is all I know, based on own experience. All other internet sites run fast and smooth without problem, even on an AmigaOne 500 aka SAM460ex.
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 02 Jul 2018, 20:58File version: 1.23r4
Have any heard anything more about a new version of Odyssey Web Browser for AmigaOS4, and what is the current status of the PPC-JIT implementation? The old Javascript support in Odyssey Web Browser 1.23r4 is getting more and more of a problem in sites like Facebook. Have to simply DISABLE Javascript support when using Facebook.
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 26 Jun 2018, 01:17File version: 1.23r4
More and more of the outdated Javascript support in Odyssey is now causing problems, especially in Facebook, even the mobile site of Facebook. Odyssey Web Browser needs a great update...again. That's the only solution, and it's a pretty obvious solution. It has to be done...Also hope to see this PPC JIT implementation that is so important...
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 06 Jun 2018, 14:35File version: 1.23r4
Seeing that sites like Facebook have undergone many important changes, I happen to notice that the outdated Javascript support in Odyssey causes some minor problems these days. For instance, at least in the fast mobile site version of Facebook, the Check-In-Place function doesn't work anymore. This is due to the outdated Javascript.

I hope the new, long-expected PPC JIT implementation for Odyssey is coming soon, and that Odyssey Web Browser can get a new update again. Like version 1.25 or 1.26. It's important to have a fully up-to-date browser on the Amiga, if we are to enjoy surfing
easily on the Amiga, and have access to all the stuffs the sites provide for us. This cannot be said enough. I understand and respect things take time, but the last updated version of Odyssey was back in 2013. We are now into 2018. So yes, 5 years have passed without a new version of Odyssey, and awaiting the PPC JIT implementation as well...I hope we all agree that these things are very important, and getting more and more important as every day passes...
Comment by: Hypex ( 04 May 2018, 18:48File version: 1.23r4
Has the embedded version been missed in this update? According to this it's from 2013:
Odyssey Web Browser 1.23 (25/12/2013)
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 30 Mar 2017, 02:15File version: 1.23r4
Is it possible to improve support for browsing some sites, like www.realescort.eu and www.soundcloud.com? Thank you in advance.
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 10 Feb 2017, 17:09File version: 1.23r4
With AmiSSL V4, there is a problem when trying to download stuffs. Instead of just choosing DESTINATION and the file once for download, you have to click both the file and the DESTINATION TWICE, to make them work.

Please update Odyssey to become compatibile with the new AmiSSL V4, and implement the PPC JIT everybody talks about. Otherwise, Odyssey works as supposed to.
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 18 Sep 2016, 15:48File version: 1.23r4
Is it possible to update some components of latest Odyssey to work better with the changes that are done with Facebook? It seems that Facebook has undergone a lot of changes and improvements, including a new multi-image uploader that doesn't work so well in Odyssey, unless you run the MOBILE version of Facebook.

I read rumours about port of a PPC JIT engine for Webkit-based browsers. Could such port to Odyssey help improve it? Do we need a whole new version of Odyssey to make use of more modern-updated sites like Facebook, with all of its' new features? Just asking...

Other than the issue with the updated Facebook, Odyssey works just fine for all other general use, AFAIK...
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 24 Aug 2016, 18:41File version: 1.23r4
New Odyssey 1.23r4 is great in most ways, but today as of 24th of August 2016, there is a problem uploading photos into Facebook from Odyssey. Usually, you should get the option of uploading the photos one-by-one (Amiga has no Flash support, and focus is more on HTML5), but the option of single upload of photos didn't show up anymore. Please fix this...
Comment by: ghh ( 21 May 2016, 15:54File version: 1.23r4
Superb work. Thank you!
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 17 May 2016, 16:49File version: 1.23r4
Thanks for providing a long-expected update of Odyssey! Much welcome and working brilliant here! Thanks again :)
Comment by: Sham ( 09 Mar 2016, 13:43File version: 1.23r3
Edit: Looks like i found a solution...

By setting fonts to dejavu sans, it now starts instantly again.

I also set prefs/fonts to cache fonts and i rebuilt the font cache. :-)
Comment by: Sham ( 09 Mar 2016, 11:15File version: 1.23r3
Odyssey have always opened with "loading interface", while showing the fonts being loaded

For a few days ago, i did a clean install OS, and everything. Then when i started Odysey, it started INSTANTLY.

For some reason, i reinstalled everything again on an SSD, but now, it's back to the 7 second loadscreen.

what did i do? :-P

Comment by: HKvalhe ( 23 Jan 2015, 14:39File version: 1.23r3
Is it possible to update Odyssey to handle the new video features from AmigaOS 4.1 Final, as well as RadeonHD 2.4 drivers? The YUV2 Composite video feature that the new MPlayer can use? I'm sure the HTML5 player intergrated in Odyssey Web Browser can be improved to allow such smooth playback. As well as improving overall performance, noticeable when visiting sites like that of YouTube, and the possibility to finally log into sites like Blogger.com and your YourTube account again. This was not possible as it still stands, due to some changes i believe Google/YouTube did.

Other than that, Odyssey runs quite fine in FE with latest version.
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 08 Jun 2014, 23:29File version: 1.23r3
Several Amiga Users and myself have found out that Google has changed some routines for logging into sites like Blogger and YouTube with Google+ account. Odyssey can't no longer log into Blogger or YouTube. Only on TimberWolf.

Odyssey 1.24 for MorphOS is the version that AmigaOS4 would need to be fully up to 2014 level with browsing. I hope we will see version 1.24. Perhaps around summer or a little later, if possible?
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 06 Jun 2014, 23:15File version: 1.23r3
This might be a little out of the blue, but today (Thursday 6th of June 2014) i suddenly experienced a problem to log into Blogger.com and YouTube.com in native Odyssey spoof mode. Earlier, this was always possible. These 2 sites are syncronized with my Google+ account, sharing the same login. I appeared into Google+ with my account, but couldn't log into neither Blogger or YouTube, and i haven't changed anything in Odyssey since third version of 1.23 was released.

In Blogger.com, after typing in my Google+ account and log into Google+, it tries to log me into the blog site, but fails with an error message.

In YouTube, a weird error message says there is a problem with the browser in the way that YouTube thinks the browser is outdated, or simply doesn't recognize it.

What to do? Any suggestions? I have scripts like YouTube Center.js

Any help is good help.

Or use the comment part: $VER: Odyssey Web Browser 1.23 (25.12.2013) Release 3.

Hahah :P

PS: In this case Extversion stands for extra version string
Comment by: @marko ( 27 May 2014, 15:56File version: 1.23r3
Would that make it an Extended Version? LOL! I love it. :-D
Comment by: kas1e ( 10 May 2014, 06:45File version: 1.23r3
i do not understand what you mean (and i change nothingabout bookmarks code). probably its problems with your settings. if you still think there some bug somewhere: plz, report it on bugs.os4depot.net
Comment by: daveyw ( 10 May 2014, 06:16File version: 1.23r3
Always great to see Odyssey updated, but one change that appeared in the previous update was the way bookmarks were handled. Previously, bookmarks would appeared at whatever position the cursor was at. Now, they always appear at the very bottom.
Comment by: marko ( 08 May 2014, 02:20File version: 1.23r3

Maybe you could add an extversion cookie with a release number, like
$EXTVER: Odyssey Web Browser 1.23r3 (05.05.2014)

and of course keep the normal version cookie
$VER: Odyssey Web Browser 1.23 (25.12.2013)
as it is.

And then (soon if not later) that release number could be read with Extversion from OpenAmiga.org. :)
Comment by: kas1e ( 07 May 2014, 13:38File version: 1.23r3
Version is the same 1.23, all those "revisions" its only for os4. So i only update it and reupload there, and only name it as "r", just so ppls know its new version. But inside everything 1.23 as it should be.

It may worth to change in about, but then will need to change it everywhere (many parts) and to avoid any problems with users scripts/etc which done for morphos and can be used on os4, and which may check "1.23" exactly, i avoid to change versioning in the binary directly.
Comment by: LyleHaze ( 07 May 2014, 00:05File version: 1.23r3
How can we tell versions apart? It seems 1.23 is a popular version.
I checked the "about" and the original file download, no mention of
any revision yet.
Comment by: gtmooya ( 06 May 2014, 23:43File version: 1.23r3
Like the addition of notifications for downloads, is it possible to add an option to hide downloads window?

I've found the options under view (navigation, etc) don't save for next session? Not a new 'issue' with this release. Is it possible to save them?

Thanks for the update!
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 05 May 2014, 18:00File version: 1.23r3
r3 of Odyssey 1.23 is certainly a great welcome, powerful update with more and new features! Thank you so much for doing this, Kas1e, and i do mean it. Odyssey is my standard and best browser on my Amiga system, and every day browser :)

May i suggest the possibility of having AmiUpdate to update Odyssey in the future, and even installing that update if the user choose to, still remembering all settings, even bookmarks? It would be very cool if Odyssey in the future could be updated and installed from AmiUpdate as well :)

Latest Odyssey works perfectly here and it FLIES just like that! Thanks again! :)
Comment by: AAA-Chipset ( 02 Apr 2014, 21:12File version: 1.23r2
Very nice browser. Thank you kas1. :)
It works great with my x1000. :)
Comment by: Hypex ( 31 Mar 2014, 15:02File version: 1.23r2

Will check. Thanks. I'm just thinking of people who want to drag icon into dock. If the main icon can work by itself that's fine. Personally I like the splash window. Although when I think about it, a progress bar for loading a program, LOL. :-D
Comment by: HKvalhe ( 28 Mar 2014, 15:32File version: 1.23r2
Thank you Kas1e and Fab for a fantastic improvement in the already great Odyssey 1.23! The r2 of 1.23 is even better! Thanks again for outstanding work! Works marvellously here on my system.
Comment by: kas1e ( 23 Mar 2014, 06:39File version: 1.23
As for launcher, it here for reasons (check tooltypes of launcher to see what you can do with). Some ppls prefer to have splash images, other ones not , etc

Follow the thread at amigans: http://www.amigans.net/modules/xforum/viewtopic.php?topic_id=6422&forum=40

In very first port you will find link to fastfix2 , and list of changes. Once it will be tested enough os4 version will be changed too.

At last I can use Odyssey to play MP3 files! I just found out that IBrowse dirverting to TuneNet was broken and a bit crass.

However there are some issues. The readme is broken, it wants CodePad.

And that :Auncher is still there to confuse people. ;-)

But I wonder, how easy is it to transfer settings from MUI-OWB into Odyssey? I was afraid to replace OWB with it but would like to do so and keep all my settings. Import manager? :-)
Comment by: Evillord68 ( 17 Mar 2014, 18:09File version: 1.23

I want to thank everybody involved, especially Kas1e, for outstanding work on this Odyssey 1.23 port for AmigaOS4, now that we got the latest MUI4 update as well!

Odyssey remembered every earlier settings i had, and setting up bookmarks as i was able to use the BookmarkTool for it, worked seamlessy! The browser is fast, stable and everything! Finally a true HTML5 browser for Amiga! Now surfing on Amiga is fun!

Keep up the excellent work! Donation of $20 to Kas1e was done by me nearly a week ago.

Hi Djrikki,
I don't know if your problem of corrupted fonts is resolved.
I had a similar problem due to the presence of the fonts downloaded by owb.
If they are already in an another directory ( fonts:_truetype for me), delete them in the new directory. That resolved my problem.
With this, I only use one directory for my fonts.
I hope that this message will help you.

As posted on Amigaworld.net. Font corruption on every page I visit. Cannot find a way to re-flush and perhaps try again.
